Leaping Salmon Quarter: Washington State public wants salmon on its currency

If a public opinion poll is anything to go by, Washington should have a gamefish on the back of its commemorative quarter, to be issued in 2007. In a recent vote to decide between three designs, nearly 45 percent of more than 134,000 Evergreen staters chose a leaping salmon. What's more, another 40 percent chose a non-leaping salmon. You might think this would pretty much clinch it for the state fish, except that the state fish is a steelhead trout.
